Texting Bride Video Goes Viral After Two Years
A two-year old clip of a texting bride took off Tuesday, now boasting more than 420,000 views in different formats across YouTube. According to the Christian Science Monitor, the video depicts a bride discreetly pulling out her cell phone from underneath her veil and texting with one hand while her father leads her down the aisle.
The video was posted in 2009, but its entrance into the viral video hall of fame occurred only recently. The original clip was posted by user jimcostafilms1, who shot the clip in San Diego in 2008. The user wrote that he captured the odd moment on film and then had to do a double take in order to make certain of what he was seeing.
“At one point, I noticed her doing it through my lens and I had to pull away from the camera to make certain I was seeing what I thought I was seeing,” he wrote.
According to the International Business Times, Jim Costa was the videographer for the wedding. He described the ceremony as “otherwise perfectly normal.”
The bride’s father is clearly trying to stifle his laughter as the minister continues with his opening remarks to the guests. The clip lasts 31 seconds and has also made its way across Twitter.
